An elevated standpoint
Flagstaff Lake, Maine, US
While canoeing one day on Flagstaff Lake, Maine, I was awestruck by this huge driftwood tree stump. Cradled inside the stump was a sapling, happily vibrant and green. Here was something apparently dead, nurturing like a mother a glorious new expression of life. The life qualities the stump was expressing—comfort, safety, strength, stability—confirmed their spiritual source and richly elevated my standpoint and understanding of life.
